Our little green alien visitor

Post  Windmere on 8/16/2014, 12:22 am

Isn't he cute as a button?



Of course, his pest fighting abilities make him all the more adorable to me:


  
We found him hanging out with our green lizards in our chrysanthemum bushes.  Man they can be tough to see!  It's really creepy when he swivels his head and looks directly at you..... yipes!

I have not seen a single mantis or ladybug this year...and less than a handful of large butterflies.

I saw one on my Dragon Tongue Beans about a month ago.  Every time I went to pick beans he would scare the heck out of me.  It was about an inch long.  Yesterday I was trying to decide whether to spray the aphids on my pink eye purple hull peas (right next to the dragon tongue beans) and I saw a big mantis on the dragon tongue beans.  Now I am afraid to spray for the aphids.  Do you think insecticidal soap would hurt the mantis.

Read the label on the insecticidal soap to be sure but my guess would be yes.

It works by suffocation, so yeah. But it shouldn't hurt him if he walked over it after it dried.
